Nintendo Wii Mini review: Mini in all the wrong ways

 

Nintendo's stripped-down new Wii game system may seem affordable, but it also leaves a lot behind.

The ; is compact and very affordable, and the bundle's price is only a few dollars more than some of its components would cost if purchased separately.

No online functionality means you won't be able to play downloadable retro Wii games or watch Netflix; it can't connect to HDMI ports, and can't display HD video; original Wii can be found for just a bit more, or even less if purchased used.

The bare-bones Wii Mini gets rid of many Wii features to just focus on playing disc games, but the stripped-down experience isn't worth the savings.

Nintendo Wii Mini

 

The Wii revision that nobody asked for.

Attractive design ; Cool red controllers

No online connectivity ; Composite AV only ; Not that much smaller than the original Wii ; Top loading drive actually means it takes up more space

It also means you can’t download apps for services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube, and - possibly most serious of all - it prevents patches from being applied to existing software. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword shipped in 2011 with a...

Nintendo Wii Mini

 

Amid the fuss surrounding the launch of the Wii U it's easy to forget that Nintendo also released another new piece of hardware at the end of 2012: the scaled-down Nintendo Wii Mini. Essentially a Wii in different clothing, the system is currently...

The Wii Mini is a good idea on paper. The Wii is now six years old and has sold millions, so a cheaper hardware revision is an excellent way of rejuvenating interest and picking up some more fans. Sadly, Nintendo has robbed the machine of so much...

The mini works great!

 

The mini takes some getting used to after having a traditional Wii for years. However, having so many games and only getting a buck or 2 for used games we felt like this was a good buy for the kids.

Good Value

 

The Wii bundle is a phenominal value. You can't beat a new console with a game for $89 bucks. However, be aware that this iteration does not have an SD slot or internet connectivity in any way shape or form. I was not aware of this before bying, my...

Love the red!

 

I purchased this WII for our 8 yr old grandson, especially because it does not have access to the internet. He loves the Mario Kart game and is very happy with it. We were replacing the original WII that wore out.

Awesome

 

My 5 year old loves Mario kart. It's easy to operate and we got him a steering wheel to put the remote in and he thinks it's the best thing ever. I like it a lot too, really takes me back to my childhood. We also got him the Super Mario Bros and it's...
